Me as a gamer.... Do I suck?

Heyo how it goes?
I've been a gamer since.. I forget when exactly, but it all started when I got my Nintendo DS lite and new super Mario world. I've got more ds games then I can count (including some 3ds ones). I've also console games quite a bit, mostly Nintendo (yes I'm a noob from that sense lemme explain). But there is one thing that has stuck about me. I. SUCK. AT. LITERIALY. ANY. ONLINE/CONPETITIVE. GAMES. (Except splatoon maybe) here's what I mean. Pokemon: team building? Items? Strategist? Wut. Pokken: NOPE. Splatoon: I think I'm decent, but it really depends on who I'm paired with. Put me in ANY online situation, (exept MMORPG, In actually pretty good at them) and I will probably suck if no teammates are involved. So here's the question: does this make me a bad gamer? Alright alright, so maybe I've been a little too hard on myself. I think I am a slightly above average, fast learning gamer. I'm just not hardcore, and sometimes, I wonder if that's what's holding me back from being a true gamer. I also happen to NOT be addicted to video games (no offense, in fact that's why you guys kick my A--) I also have a pretty short attention span, and a lot of energy, so I usually can't play a game for more than an hour without taking a break (NOOOOOOOOOB listen I've got other things in my life ok?) so anyway, what do you guys think?

I think that's no big deal. The purpose of a video game(in my opinion) is to allow you to have fun while playing it. No need to be a "hardcore gamer" to enjoy playing games.Also I've never understood a damn thing about strategy in pokemon --'

You know what? You're right. It's just with online gaming and crap, I feel self conscious about my competitiveness and...
0.0 wait.... you're in my boat with Pokemon....
0.0 NUFF SAID GIVE THIS GUY/GIRL A MEDAL OR SOMETHING
(Truth be told, I really love Pokemon and it's my favorite gaming franchise. But as you said, I just can't get my shit together when it comes to competitive... I've tried twice.... but I realized I ain't cut out for dat )

true gamer.
1. Please never use this term ever again, it made me cringe.
2. I feel everyone gets "better" if they play and or develop a new mindset.

Its basically about reads, luck, buffs, debuffs and builds. Its simple when you find out about the little hidden things like how being burned lowers your attack etc.

1. My strategy?...... Play like an ametuer and see how it goes... fighting game? Probably spamming/muscle memory.. but your right
2. I know how it works, but I can't EMPLOY it. Team building? Forget it.

Bad team-mates are a pain to deal with, though I don't have that that problem very much...
We should play Splatoon sometime...
I'm too pro at it, (top player almost every time)
Would you be able to tell me how long you've played it, and what's your main weapon?
I'd be most obliged to give you some tips to git gud!

K then ;) (may we have a moment of silence to honor those who must have a restriction on the internet, and to realize how lucky us people are who have the luxury of 24 hour use...)

I hope this was a typo. It would be more hellish if your internet was cut off at 9:02 because its so uneven I'd complain just to get it to 9 to avoid the headache.

Unless you're the one from Polygon playing Doom, don't worry about it mate.

If you want to get the most out of a system I would highly recommend getting a PC.

Do you suck as a gamer?
Pffft. Who the karp cares?! This is gonna sound corny as all get out but as long as you're having fun who gives a flying karp?
I believe that anyone who likes video games should be considered a gamer. Enough with the' TRUE GAMERS CAN BLABLAKARP'.

Heh... Sorry. I tend to get a little fired up when it comes to this topic. I'll stop.
Myself, I play strictly for fun. And who knows, I might be wrong about the definition because I'm not a competitive player.
*shrug*

As a side note- I really just pick pokemon that I like/are cute. I'd get totally dominated if I tried to compete in anything online. XD

The only reason I'm not too interested in the idea of getting a PC, is just Zelda... and portability... and the fact I have to literally sneak my way around my folks on to the computer... It's just not for me...
